9172 PentaComm™: Satellite-based Remote Tank Monitor

9172 PentaComm™: Satellite-based Remote Tank Monitor
The 9172 PentaComm is a satellite-based tank-gauging solution designed to meet your multi-tank monitoring needs (up to 5 tanks per unit) in the most distant and isolated environments. Designed to provide effective communication in remote places, under tough conditions, the 9172 Pentacomm provides access to your tank information literally anywhere on the Earth, no matter how remote.

The PentaComm uses the famous Orbcomm satellite constellation and infrastructure Satellite over US— dozens of communications satellites continuously orbiting the Earth, relaying communications from PentaComm units at tank sites, to ground-based communications networks that reach you anywhere — to provide prompt communications access to your remote tanks in the most difficult-to-reach places.

The PentaComm is housed in a rugged NEMA 4X enclosure, allowing it to meet the most demanding requirements. Inside the PentaComm, are a battery, satellite transceiver, and input circutry to connect up to five 4-20mA or 0-5 volt data signals, in any combination.

PentaComm units are particularly popular for Oil and Gas Fields, Oxygen tanks at hospitals, Lift Stations, Ag Chemical/Feed Stations, Livestock Feed Tanks, Remote-storage tank farms — and for any situation where the monitor unit must be independent of ground-based communications systems.
